MESA, Colo. (September 25, 2013) – Powderhorn Mountain Resort and the Daily Sentinel join forces to bring back the Learn to Ski and Ride Season Pass Program for the 2013 – 2014 winter season. The perfect option for anyone new to skiing or snowboarding, the program includes three ski or snowboard lessons at Powderhorn, as well as a free season pass for the 2013-2014 season upon completion of the lesson program.

Designed for first time skiers or snowboarders ages eight and up, The Daily Sentinal’s Learn to Ski and Ride Season Pass program features three consecutive ski or snowboard lessons at Powderhorn Mountain Resort with the Intensive Series. Powderhorn’s Intensive Series includes a full day group lesson with an hour break for lunch. Lessons run from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. Participants emerge from the series with a great foundation in their chosen snow sport, and are able to put new skills to the test on-mountain.

Upon completion of the three-lesson program, participants receive a free season pass for the remainder of the 2013 – 2014 season.

“Our future lies in those who have yet to discover snow sports,” said Powderhorn Mountain Resort General Manager Sam Williams. “We are vested in creating the most convenient and affordable option with the Learn to Ski and Ride Program. A free season pass with three lessons to get someone started skiing or riding is not only the best bang for your buck but a great way to get involved in the Powderhorn family.”

Powderhorn is committed to enhancing and growing its community ski and ride programs. These classes include the benefit of learning a new sport, and allow participants to gain an appreciation of and learn how to safely access the winter outdoor environment. Lessons focus on weather precautions, changing snow conditions, etiquette on the mountain and the Skier/Rider Responsibility Code. Cost for the program at the early season rate (before Nov. 2) is $249 for youth and pre-teen participants (ages 8-17), $299 for adults (18+) and $299 for full time college students.
